guys, i have a FE and a BE. when i sync the BE by opening it up and choosing sync from the access application, it's ok. but when i try to sync via code from the FE, i get the problem "The search key was not found"

what can i do?

my FE has no tables and it's just calling the sync ability of the BE to the network database. help help

to me i think that the BE is ok cause there are no problems when i sync by opening the BE and sync. but the FE has problems syncing through code so i'm not sure how to isolate the problem. how do i find the corrupt record?

That error almost always means that ... one or more fields in one or more records is corrupted. Usually ... a Compact & Repair on the db will fix this ... usually.

"Search Key was not found in any record"
Probably there are some bad records corrupting the table. Look for "chinese" characters in text fields. You can't delete these records unless you temporarily remove the table indexes, delete the records, replace the indexes.

Daily compact and repair may resolve the issue. Also, encourage users to close the application before disconnecting a network cable or pressing the reset button on the computer.

hrmm yup i think that could be a good way to do things. i gotta research more on C&R through code cause the last time i looked at it if i remember correctly it's quite hard to do it through code in the current database that you wanna C&R right? they were asking for another location that you wanna C&R to ha. and i don't wanna set it such that every single time they close the database it C&Rs. very time consuming

Please see our free Application Starter utility at http://www.peterssoftware.com/aps.htm . With it, you can compact and repair a database when it opens for the first time each day.
